Dental Cleaning and Prevention of Decay


Tooth Decay

We believe the earlier we identify and treat tooth decay the better. We recommend x-rays every 24 months to identify any areas of decay between teeth, in the grooves on biting surfaces and around or underneath existing fillings. In some cases, early decay can be reversed simply by improving your brushing, cleaning techniques and diet. We may also recommend special fluoride containing mouthwashes or treat directly the early decay with concentrated fluoride gels. Less dental work means less inconvenience and expense for you. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near to La Marque, Galveston, and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB, and ROSS market complex and  the nearest dentist office . 

Oral Hygiene Instructions

Your dental care partners here at our Dental clinic serve as your guide while you work on keeping a high standard oral hygiene. Good dental care habits will help prevent dental problems, which can save you dental pain and treatments. Dedicating only a few minutes to daily dental hygiene care will help you achieve this type of preventative care. During your periodic examination, your dentist will provide detailed instructions that you can do at home to help improve the health of your teeth and gums. This includes proper brushing and flossing techniques, types of dental diseases and ways to avert them and any treatments you need to perform at home.

Dental Cleaning

Professional teeth cleaning involves eliminating plaque and tartar build-up that have accumulated on your teeth over time. Tartar piles up because your teeth are continually soaked in saliva, which is composed of calcium and other substances. These substances help reinforce and protect your teeth. On the other hand, while this is beneficial, it also means that you tend to get an accumulation of calcium residues on your teeth. Only your dentist can remove these calcium deposits, also known as tartar, using special instruments. Allowing the tartar to build up on the teeth will provide the right place for bacteria to flourish next to the gums, which in turn can cause tooth decay and gum disease.

The objective of cleaning your teeth professionally is to leave all tooth surfaces clean and smooth so that harmful bacteria won’t stick to them. As a result, you will have a better chance of keeping the teeth clean when you perform your dental care at home.
